 To add to what Rowland said, Redhat clearly isn't going to implement it
soon because it isn't in Fedora Rawhide yet.

If you go here https://apps.fedoraproject.org/packages/samba-dc/ and
check for the contents of the package you will get the "your kerberos is
in another distro" message.

I haven't tried building it from source yet because functionality of
febootstap to bootstrap a fedora based system was removed by the
upstream a few years ago. I could just install it via kvm, but then I
would have to sit through the whole installation process which I
shouldn't have to do just to build a package.
